News of Macs and iPhones being stolen from Apple stores is almost common, since Ma's retail spaces are relatively unprotected and the high value of the merchandise there is very attractive to outlaws. Now you know what less common? A load of Apple watches be stolen in the warehouses of Amazon.
That's exactly what happened, according to rdio Wdel: Delaware State Police discovered four people who stole the equivalent of $ 100,000 Apple watches from Amazon warehouses. The four suspects were employees of the retailer and worked as a team to dismantle the facility's Watches (and some accessories).
The operation took place over the course of a few months, and certainly required some specialization from the suspects: if we rely on the prices of Apple Watches sold today by Amazon, we can conclude that between 220 and 550 units of the watch were stolen, depending on the model.
Three of the four suspects were arrested by the Delaware police after a complaint from Amazon itself; The fourth person involved in the crimes fled. Some of the stolen items have already been recovered, but most of them have not been found and have certainly been sold in parallel markets.
